Canada’s Spring Cycling Classic. Inspired by Europe’s historic Paris to Roubaix cycling race, the Paris to Ancaster has taken place for the past twenty-two years over some of Ontario’s roughest farm lanes, trails and gravel roads.

Combined with unpredictable spring weather and the largest field of riders assembled in Canada, it has become a classic race experience for everyone from average riders to Canadian Olympians. The race takes place at the end of April and features a fun “Let’s Ride!” course for kids.
